Gingerbread men banned at Scottish Parliament as part of a new drive to 'stamp out sexism'
Daily Fail
Gingerbread men have been replaced by gingerbread persons in the Scottish Parliament’s coffee shop in case the traditional name causes offence.

The move comes as a strategy aimed at stamping out sexual harassment and sexism was introduced at Holyrood this week after a survey found 30 per cent of women working there believed they had been sexually harassed.

...
Synopsis: Not everyone thinks it's a good idea.

Analysis: Yeah OK, but are they halal? :Muhammad:

#MeToo Brought Down 201 Powerful Men. Nearly Half of Their Replacements Are Women.

Forty-three percent of their replacements were women. Of those, one-third are in news media, one-quarter in government, and one-fifth in entertainment and the arts. For example, Robin Wright replaced Kevin Spacey as lead actor on “House of Cards,” Emily Nemens replaced Lorin Stein as editor of “The Paris Review,” and Tina Smith replaced Al Franken as a senator from Minnesota.

Even more interesting, see the chart titled: People Replacing Men Accused of Sexual Misconduct

It seems that over half of the jobs once held by men
who were accused of some #MeToo offense, were not backfilled refilled.
Given that roughly half the population is female, that sounds about right.

We're also including men who were essentially self-employed like Louis CK.

Although he has been "replaced" in a sense, it's not by a single person taking over his former role.

Interesting that they also counted Robin Wright replacing Kevin Spacey in House of Cards. But only for the final season.

It's a Christmas classic probably being played in shops and radio stations all over the world.

But a radio station in Cleveland, Ohio has decided to remove Baby It's Cold Outside from its playlist following complaints from listeners.
...

Star 102 Abruptly Stops Playing This Christmas Song. Here's Why

Clickbait headline FTW
Joan Collins: 'Baby, It's Cold Outside' furor shows consent culture is 'out of control'
"Dynasty" star Joan Collins is over the whole argument about whether "Baby, It's Cold Outside" is "date-rapey" or not.

The 85-year-old British actress thinks the furor over the song represents a slippery slope.

What’s going to happen to seduction is you are not going to be allowed anymore,” she argued on "Good Morning Britain" Monday. “Is someone going to have to ask permission of the parents before they can kiss a girl? It’s absolutely becoming out of control. It seems to have happened in the last two years. It seems to get worse and worse.”

For the record, Collins says the song is "sweet ... “It’s gentle, kind, funny, tuneful."

As for the people pushing for it to be banned? "How dare they?" the screen siren declared, adding, "The world's gone nuts."
Welcome to the new paradigm Joan, assume the position, and repeat after Kevin....

Ya Allah! :Muhammad:

The answer is arranged marriages of course. Which is part of normal traditional family life. And not just for Muslims, either.

The infidels started getting it wrong hundreds of years ago with all that haram crap about "being in love". That is what began the slippery slope to feminism and sodomy.

You might want to adjust your clock a bit as "being in love" goes back a bit more than hundreds of years.

Maybe it's the notion of marrying for love, instead of essentially as a business transaction. For a dowry or whatever.

https://www.bostonherald.com/2018/12/24 ... x-assault/
Kevin Spacey will be charged with a felony for indecently assaulting a longtime Boston news anchor’s teenage son in a Nantucket bar, Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O’Keefe said.

The charge comes more than a year after former WCVB anchor Heather Unruh made tearful allegations that the now-disgraced Oscar-winning actor molested her “starstruck” teenage son in 2016.

The charge of indecent assault and battery comes following a show-cause hearing last Thursday in Nantucket District Court against the actor, whose given name is Kevin Spacey Fowler. Spacey will be arraigned in two weeks on Monday, Jan. 7, on the island, according to O’Keefe’s office.
He'll fit in real good.
In the minutes after the story broke about the Nantucket charges coming, Spacey tweeted a video on his confirmed Twitter account in which he reprised his character from the popular Netflix show House of Cards, which he was ousted from following the multiple accusations last year. In the video, Spacey speaks while doing the dishes, striking an ominous tone in statements that could refer to the conniving politician he played — or to the multiple allegations in his real life.
When we attend to his back-sassin' and get his mind right.
Get the wax outta your ears!

You call the Captain "Captain!"

And you call the rest of us "Boss," you hear?!

Nikki Fried Wants Pardon for Groveland Men Falsely Accused of Rape
ORLANDO, Fla. — Florida Agriculture Commissioner-elect Nikki Fried says she wants to get a formal pardon for four African American men who were wrongly accused of raping a white woman...
.
.
wait for it...
.
.
in 1949.

The case is considered one of the greatest miscarriages of justice in Jim Crow-era Florida.

A Lake County woman accused the Groveland men of abducting and raping her after two of the men stopped to help her and her partner after their truck broke down.
If you take out the racial element it is somewhat like the #MeToo stuff now a days.

A helpful reminder of the folly of mob justice, then.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Former child actor Jimmy Bennett, 22, who has accused Asia Argento of sexual assault now 'refuses to talk to police' and has yet to file report about the alleged attack
Former child actor Jimmy Bennett, who has publicly accused Asia Argento of sexually assaulting him when he was 17 years old, has gone to ground without ever reporting the alleged crime to the police in Los Angeles as he promised to do months ago.
...
Officers with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office have reportedly made several attempts to contact Bennett about the incident, but to no avail.
...
Although in early September Bennett signaled his intention to file a sexual assault report against Argento and cooperate with the investigation, he has yet to follow through on his promise.
...
The revelation in August that Argento had sex with Bennett and then agreed to pay him $380,000 four years later after he threatened to go public with the story hit the actress and the #MeToo movement like a bomb.
...
Argento initially denied they had had sex. But when texts leaked two days later that showed her saying 'He jumped me', Argento said through an attorney that she was the victim, not Bennett.
:doglaugh:
CA is a state where the age of consent is 18!

You had sex with a minor!

In theory the evidence is out there, the rape is statutory and you have admitted intercourse took place.
Technically, that is all the prosecutor would need to press charges....

...however I do not expect that to happen. Why?
Because vagina!

I was going to make a "t3h funn3h" retort, but then I thought about it, and a man who anally raped a roughly 13 year-old girl is lauded and has defenders still after all of these decades.

But Keyser Kevin Spacey puts his hands down a near-adult's pants and?

Of course, it should not matter. They are both crimes and both should be tried and punished if convicted. The hypocrisy lies in those who think one is not a crime and the other is.

In the rain.
